For Commissioners

Affinity Trust is a specialist provider of support services for people with Score open daylearning disabilities, including those with complex and challenging needs. Across England and Scotland, 830 people access our tailored support, delivered particularly within supported living but also through residential care services, day opportunities and outreach domiciliary care.  We work with 35 local authority areas in England and Scotland, to deliver services that meet the needs of the people we support and those of the commissioners and care managers we work with in partnership.

We provide and offer support for individuals with learning disabilities who also have a wide range of additional needs and requirements, including mental ill health, complex physical needs, sensory impairments, complex behavioural or health needs and autism.

Affinity Trust does support people with varying needs but specialises in providing support to people with often intensive and complex support needs. We have a depth of experience in tailoring support to meet the needs of individuals with particularly challenging issues and behaviours. We have also developed particular expertise to support the return of individuals from out of area placements, assessment and treatment units and in supporting people with forensic backgrounds. Our specialist team is of the highest standard, featuring a quality manager and a team of clinical psychologists.

Supported living is our preferred model of support. Nearly all of the people supported in supported living services have moderate to profound learning disabilities. They span all adult age ranges and have additional complex support needs such as challenging behaviour, Autism, Cri du Chat, dementia, mental ill health, eating and breathing disorders (including pica, Prader Willi Syndrome, people who require PEG feeding), epilepsy, physical disabilities and sensory impairment. We use person-centred planning and a values-based approach to support people to maintain a tenancy, run their household, manage their finances, maintain their health and well-being, access community facilities and achieve their personal goals. Affinity Trust has a wide and varied experience of helping to source and sometimes directly provide appropriate accommodation as well as supporting individuals to gain and maintain their own tenancies. A significant proportion of the people we support have moved from residential homes, secure hospital settings or other institutional settings to live successfully in their local community in supported living.

Reena

We have considerable experience of TUPE both from the public and private sector having taken over the support of individuals in NHS campus provision in a number of areas. This has involved the successful TUPE transfer of more than 400 staff across 34 sites. We have worked in partnership with many local authorities and Registered Social Landlords, to move people from residential care to supported living and have experience of successfully taking on failing services where a local authority has directly asked us to take over the support services run by another provider.

If you think we may be of help to you to find support solutions for people, particularly with complex support needs, please contact us at the nearest office or using development@affinitytrust.org.
